Oralux / Diagnostic Lightstick


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

ORALUX rethinks how medical professionals perform examinations of the tongue and mouth cavity by combining the need of holding a sterile tongue stick and a light source into one elegant solution that can seamlessly be integrated into the workflow. The product is automatically activated when a new stick is inserted and deactivated by removing the stick with the release slider. The tool uses powerful LED technology, which is smartly incorporated into a functional, clean and hygienic design. Besides providing stability when holding the product, the metal clip at the back adds a trustworthy appearance and can be used to clip the product to coat pockets.

Diagnostic lightstick solves the problem of current doctors to use both hands or use lamp on their forehead. This product helps the accuracy of examination, hygiene and ease of use hence, function and design concept are well-harmonized.
